Billy Ocean (born Leslie Sebastian Charles; 21 January 1950) is a Trinidadian-English recording artist who had a string of R&B international pop hits in the 1970s and 1980s. He was the most popular Trinidad–British R&B singer-songwriter of the early to mid-1980s. After scoring his first four UK Top 20 successes, seven years passed before he accumulated a series of transatlantic successes, including three US No. 1's.
His 1985 hit "When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going" reached No. 1 in the UK and No. 2 in the US. In 1985, Ocean won the Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his worldwide hit "Caribbean Queen (No More Love on the Run)" and in 1987 was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male Artist.
Tobias is a serif typeface with a baroque and transitional appearance. His weight stress is still diagonal like in Old-Style or Renaissance typefaces. It’s x-height is higher than usual and connection on stems is not smooth (arches are punched into stems). It stands next to his brother Teodor and sister Reckless. As Tobias originates from Baroque roots appropriate terminals are made up from drops and ears. The typeface includes numerous alternates which play with different directions of serifs.
In Tobias you can find certain similarities with Times and Times New Roman (1904 William Starling Burgess, 1931–1974 Stanley Morison, Victor Lardent), Baskerville (1923 John Baskerville) and Goudy (1908 Frederic W. Goudy).
